“Awesome food, helpful owner and staff, great location. Must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for a late lunch and were greeted instantly with wonderful staff and the owner was at our table answering our questions. I found this great dive on previous trip advisor reviews and they are all spot on....this place is AWESOME! The mofongo releno is awesome (I had the steak with the garlic sauce) and it was cooked to perfection! Great mojitos as well! It's a perfect location to watch the cruise ships arrive.

You can tell the owner is passionate and loves what he does because he was by our table throughout our meal giving us suggestions on places to go and see around San Juan. This is a must try place if you are in the San Juan area!

“Delicious!! Check the pics on yelp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We loved this place. We went the first day there, and came back our last day, it was that good. 2 for 1 mojitos all day every day, with awesome flavors like watermelon and blueberry. The owner is so nice, he gave us pointers on what other restaurants to go to in other cities, all the wait staff is really funny and great. The churrasco is amazing, fish with mango salsa is too, and all at decent prices. It's just so damn good, don't miss this place.

“Good food with reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is just few steps from our hotel. It offers great choices of local foods. People are so friendly amd patient to explain everthing on menu. We visited many times and tried different things. I will recommend their mofongo with garlic source and mojitos.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

We visited not once, but twice during our trip. They food was delicious and well presented, especially when upon walking up it looked not much more than a dive bar!! The classic mojitos were refreshing and well poured, not to mention an excellent value! Our good was yummy and we enjoyed our visit with Mike, who I believe is the owner. We recommend ordering a couple different plates and sharing. Right across the street from the cruise piers.

“Very nice food. Great Mojitos. Helpful Owner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went to this place after reading reviews on Yelp and Tripadvisor and I must say that we were not disappointed. This place is always super crowded so you would be better off planning accordingly. This place has the feel of a cheap bar from inside, so we decided to sit outside. Also the restaurant is informal so there was no wait list system. It took some time for us to get the table. All this hassle was getting on our nerves. But from there, everything went uphill. Food was very good. We tried mofongo, mahi-mahi, blended rice and beans, chicken tacos and steak tacos. Everything was very good but mahi-mahi was exceptionally good. The owner Mike was very friendly and he came around talking and giving advice on what Puerto Rican food we need to try and what's the best place to go for it. He also shared the local info about parking places and places we should visit. Place is not too expensive for Puerto Rico and is worth a visit if you are staying in old san juan.
